A few weeks back we checked out LaunchPad - a great app that lets you create web shortcuts right from your device. We got word today that they have just issued an update to version 1.5. This update includes the ability to create web shortcuts as well as both phone calls and composing emails. The phone call launcher will start dialing the specified number when clicked, and the email launcher will start composing an email to a specified address. You can choose all the options, including icon images, right from your address book. LaunchPad supports up to 40 launchers on your device (why you would need that many is beyond me). The update is free for all current users, and if you haven't purchased LaunchPad yet, you can still grab it for only $0.99 until the end of the month.
